1/ Let's take a look at some of EA's prepared remarks and take a deeper look at why their quarter bucked the industry "dip". The big hitters for EA: #FIFA, #F122, and #ApexLegends. Sounds like F1 has worked out better than expected. Image
2/ Where things get confusing to the outside reader is when it comes to accounting. Net Bookings represent a slight decline YoY, but because of how revenue is accounted for in GAAP, more of it [revenue] was financially booked this last quarter. This is normal BTW. ImageImage
3/ How does this happen? Generally speaking, GAAP demands companies recognize revenue in the quarter that the product is realized. If someone "books" (pre-purchases) a game months before the launch quarter, the revenue can't be accounted for until the product launches.

¡Ecuador 🇪🇨 al Mundial!

Por cuarta vez en su historia, @LaTri participará en la máxima competencia futbolística del mundo cumpliendo, así, el sueño de 17 millones de ecuatorianos.

Y desde @clubhilosfutbol te contamos cómo Gustavo Alfaro 🇦🇷 y sus dirigidos lo hicieron posible.
A pesar de la dura derrota de anoche por 1-3 ante Paraguay 🇵🇾, #Ecuador sacó boleto 🎟 a #Qatar2022 🛫 gracias al colchón de puntos que acumuló a lo largo de todas las eliminatorias, en las que realizó partidos extraordinarios y obtuvo excelentes resultados.
El pueblo ecuatoriano está fiesta. Después de 8 años, #LaTri regresa a la elite del fútbol mundial.

Pero para llegar a #Qatar 🇶🇦, la @FEFecuador tuvo que pasar por momentos difíciles, entre ellos, un intento de Golpe de Estado y tres DT hasta la llegada de Gustavo Alfaro.

¿No hay muertos? Esconden los muertos en el estadio y sus alrededores, para que la directiva y la liga no tenga responsabilidad civil o penal. Y después dirán que murieron en el hospital. Así de ruines son los directivos de la LigaMX #Queretaro #17Muertos #FIFA @LigaBBVAMX

Der #Uefa ist zuzutrauen, dass #Russland am grünen Tisch in die nächste Runde kommt.

Oder doch nicht?

🇧🇪⚽️🚨 Comment le #mercato du #Standard et la vente du #RSCL est-elle étroitement liée à l’affaire #Edmilson ?

#alduhailfc
Inquiété par le dossier #Edmilson où le #Standard pourrait écoper d’une interdiction de recrutement de la #FIFA étalée sur 1 voire 2 périodes de transfert, le président du club liégeois, Bruno #Venanzi, souhaiterait trouver un accord à l’amiable avec le #STVV. #RSCL #mercato
En échange de l’arrêt des poursuites, une offre ~ les 1,3M€ + la cession du défenseur Ameen #AlDakhil (le #Standard garderait un % à la revente) & le prêt gratuit (salaire 100 % payé par le #RSCL jusqu’en fin de saison) de Joao #Klauss aurait été faite aux dirigeants du #STVV.

Let us take a moment to appreciate the work Datel did 20 years ago, reverse engineering and developing their own playable unofficial PS2 DVD discs which contained the watermark and decryption key required to boot code which could not be done with a consumer DVD burner. A 🧵… 10 Classic Retro games PS2 Disc
Of course they are most famous of their Action Replay (AR) cheat devices, which would have never have received approval from Sony. Modifying memory in the way AR does would be too much of a security risk in terms of piracy/exploits
However unlike cartridge based versions it didn’t have the Code Creation capability and thus you were reliant on the codes created by the “CodeJunkies” team. You could get these codes either on the website or use the #PS2 modem to connect to the servers, that was a nice touch!

1. Tomorrow on radio I will share the letters exchanged between me and the prime minister of Pakistan. In the hour of desperate need I reached out in the hopes that some sort of leadership could be found to help us do the impossible. @ImranKhanPTI Con’t
2. We reached out and asked numerous leaders in political and civil society around the world for help. The silence was shocking as was the outpouring help on a humanitarian basis. Some calls and requests received a simple yes or no, some went unanswered but …. CON’T
3. we received an immediate response to our requests from Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan who then acted on his willingness to assist.Collectively, we transcended religious differences, political divides, national boundaries and local dynamics - it was about a humanitarian

🧵| #FIFA está probando el The Future Cup (un torneo de equipos sub-19) 5️⃣ reglas nuevas en el fútbol, todo esto con el objetivo de agilizar y darle mucha más dinámica al juego.

Aquí va a detalle cada una ⬇️
🧵| 1. Saques de banda realizados con los pies:

📌Los jugadores posicionan el balón en el piso y desde ahí podrán hacerle el pase a uno de sus compañeros o si lo desean avanzar con él. Algo parecido al micro futbol.
🧵| 2. Tiros libres y de esquina:

📌Está segunda implementación está relacionada con la 1ª pero con la diferenciación de que se aplica en tiros libres y de esquina. Si el jugador lo desea, puede avanzar sin necesidad de hacerle un pase a un compañero y encarar solo.

#Hilo de domingo 📝☕

En calendario normal estaríamos a un año del próximo Mundial, pero #Qatar22 🇶🇦 es todo lo contrario (Spoiler: la ciudad de la final aún no existe 🤯)

Literalmente se creó un nuevo país. Y todo tiene su costo... 🤑🤑

Vamos a ver cómo viene y sus datos✍️
Partamos de la base que el Mundial de Qatar 🇶🇦 no se jugará entre junio y julio si no que lo hará entre el 22 de noviembre y el 18 de diciembre 📆

Acá tenemos la primer rareza; será el Mundial más corto de la historia moderna con solo 28 días de duración cuando suele tener 32 ⏱️
El cambio de calendario se debe a las altas temperaturas 🌡️ que tiene Qatar 🇶🇦. Sin embargo, en diciembre también pega fuerte el sol y por eso los estadios contarán con un sistema de aire acondicionado realmente gigante que mantendrán a todo el mundo fresquito una vez dentro 🥵

Uno dei temi riguardanti #EURO2020 delle ultime ore è la richiesta del Comune di Monaco di Baviera di illuminare lo stadio coi colori arcobaleno il 22 giugno in occasione di Germania-Ungheria.
Ne ho lette di tutti i colori (ben oltre l'arcobaleno).
Vediamo di fare ordine.
1/n
Prima cosa: chi ha il potere di decidere?
Molti penserebbero: il proprietario dello stadio. E (pensando all'italiana, dove generalmente gli stadi appartengono ai comuni) questo hanno pensato che non è il comune di Monaco a dover chiedere alla #UEFA il permesso di farlo [...]
2/n
[...] ma la UEFA a dover chiedere al comune di non farlo.
Due errori in uno.
1) Il proprietario dello stadio di Monaco è il #Bayern Monaco, non il comune, quindi il comune non può decidere comunque in proprio, anche senza UEFA.

In two weeks from now, the first #UEFA Euros match in #Baku will kick-off when #Wales meets #Switzerland.

The UK FCO currently warns of unexploded material, terrorists attacks to be "likely" and high COVID rates. I'd say all these risks are low, but there are other issues:
According to @ILGAEurope, #Azerbaijan is the most homophobic country in Europe. So better don't go, if you are part of the #LGBTQI community 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️
Sadly, #UEFA, as #FIFA, does not care much about safeguarding #LGBTQI fans...
Be aware that #Azerbaijan is one of the most restrictive countries in the world and certainly has the most restrictive regime in Europe. Vision #Belarus, just much worse, as all kind of international organisations report.

🇪🇺 #EuropeanSuperLeague

En utilisant mes outils de #DataScience, j'ai essayé de mesurer quel rôle a joué #Twitter dans cet échec :

Sans ce réseau, le projet de ligue fermée mené par les 12 clubs les plus riches d'Europe aurait-il vécu le même sort ?

[THREAD] ⤵️
Pour analyser ce qu'il s'est passé et répondre à ma question, j'ai extrait une grande quantité de données :

2,6 millions de tweets postés par 876 000 users uniques
5 langues ciblées : 🇫🇷 🇬🇧 🇪🇦 🇮🇹 🇩🇪
56 millions de likes et 7,8 millions de retweets cumulés Image
Les tweets récoltés vont du 17 avril midi, jusqu'au 22 avril minuit.

Je vais revenir sur les faits chronologiquement pour qu'on revive cette histoire en suivant l'angle Twitter.

Voici tout d'abord la répartition des tweets que j'ai récupéré sur la période : Image

Florentino Pérez le dice a @elchiringuitotv "Nadie ha dicho que es una liga cerrada, los cinco que se suman cada temporada lo harán por méritos deportivos"
Florentino Pérez le dice a @elchiringuitotv "Que jueguen los grandes entre sí es lo que demanda la gente. Tenemos aficionados en China y Sudamérica. Son los partidos que el público pide"
Florentino Pérez le dice a @elchiringuitotv "Hemos dicho que hablaremos con #FIFA y #UEFA por ejemplo cómo entran los cinco por méritos deportivos puede salir de esas charlas"

Thread:
Linee guida per chi mi segue: non sono ne pro ne contro #Superlega. Sono contro gli ipocriti che parlano di “calcio dei tifosi” quando #Uefa, #Figc e #Fifa uccidono il calcio da anni.
(1)
Uefa permette a Psg di comprare #Neymar e #Mbappe per 400 milioni ma squalifica #Milan dalle coppe e impedisce a #Inter di comprare #Rafinha e #Cancelo.
(2).
Figc permette un campionato dove oggi non si sa quando si recupererà Lazio Torino (doveva essere la 25^ giornata)
Permette che un solo giocatore guadagni 1/10 in più di tutta una società dello stesso campionato.
Dà piu soldi a un club se retrocede di quanti ne dia per salvarsi.

QUÉ SIGNIFICA LA CREACIÓN DE LA SUPERLIGA 🇪🇺⚽️💶

Es oficial: la Super League ha nacido. 12 clubes se cortaron solos de la UEFA y decidieron crear su propia liga, entre semana, para competirle a la Champions. A la UEFA/FIFA no les gustó nada. Y esto recién comienza...

ABRO HILO. Image
Para que tengan una especie de índice, el hilo será dividido así:

📍Explicación y formato del torneo
📍 Implicaciones financieras (importante)
📍 Implicaciones deportivas
📍 ¿Se puede parar esto?

Vamos a ello.
LOS FUNDADORES DEL TORNEO

La #SuperLeague estará compuesta por:
🇮🇹 #Milan - #Juventus - #Inter
🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 #ManUtd - #Liverpool - #ManCity - #Chelsea - #Arsenal - #Tottenham
🇪🇸 #Barcelona - #AtléticoMadrid - #RealMadrid

Desde 🇩🇪 y 🇫🇷 se negaron.

Let me play the devil's advocate here for a second. #SuperLeague

THREAD
I have already stated that I believe relegation and promotion are essential for any competition. The underdog's success is a story that will always be desirable. So, if you lock in 15 clubs that will never lose their place, the competition losses its charm.
However, if that detail is corrected, then this could be something revolutionary. Like how Europen Cups were started by Santiago Bernabeu's ideology and later became the #ChampionsLeague, as we know today. Or how the #EPL rebranded itself in 1992.

Atenção: segundo a revista @RMCsport , nas próximas horas, 12 grandes clubes europeus devem formalizar a criação de uma Superliga Europeia. Em sua primeira versão não há clubes franceses e alemães. Mais um capítulo da Guerra entre grandes clubes e a #UEFA.
Os 12 clubes que deram OK para a Superliga Europeia e que deverão torná-la oficial:
Manchester United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atlético Madrid, Inter de Milão, AC Milan e Juventus!
Nesta segunda, a #UEFA deve anunciar a grande reforma na #Champions. Todos os 12 clubes falam antes da reunião de amanhã. A crise pode ser grande. Por enquanto, PSG e Bayern de Munique querem ficar próximos das posições da UEFA.
